Let's Continue Our Tour...

...of the Philadelphia Flower Show. My limited visiting hours this year kept me from the individual displays of arrangements and the judging tables, so photos are mostly of the large scale gardens.

The Dutch gardens were especially beautiful and creative this year. Instead of tip-toeing through the tulips, how about a trek on your ten-speed...

The bold-colored azaleas were amazing but this pale pink 'tree' really caught my eye.

And more tulips...

Next up will be orchids...
Cheers to the rest of your week! :)


  1. Oh, those tulips look wonderful! I haven't got anything blooming yet. Hoefully, with some warmer weather this week I'll see some daffodils.


  2. Look at all of those pretty colors of tulips. I love the Angelic double blooms. I use to have some of those but with many tulips they only bloom if your lucky for two years. The orange and yellow one is an eye opener. Really bold.I love the pink azalea too Lynn.

  3. Thank you for all the photos you shared.

    The pale pink azalea 'tree' looks to me like 'Pink Pearl' which is one of my favorites. It was one of the first I ever planted. Pink Pearl will always have a place in my garden. It won't be long now.

  4. Did you notice how many displays used bikes and bike parts??!!

  5. Hello Lynn! Thanks for taking time to share these photos. Love those tulips... especially the black ones. I don't think I have seen one in real.

    I wish there is fower shows such as this one here. love the natural landscape they have done up. The flowers all look so fresh and nice.

    Have a great week!

  6. Wow - very inspiring. I think if I saw something like that right now, I'd go home feeling impatient! ;-) Hope you've enjoyed a good St. Patrick's day!

  7. Lynn, your pictures are gorgeous! It's so fun to look at them and think, "yes, i remember that." You are an amazing photographer (and gardener, of course). Oh, guess what! We went for a short walk before it got dark, and we could see little sprouts where we planted the daffodils last fall. I'll send pictures when they get a little bigger! Hugs to you.

  8. Thanks for being my surrogate at the flower show! I'm just this week posting my best dayilies of 2009 at http://todaylily.blogspot.com because last year I started dabbing pollen and there just wasn't energy to type afterward. Terry Oates Garden State Daylily Growers (next mtg Sun. April 18). Full year schedule is up at www.gsdaylily.org


Go ahead.
Make My Day.
